Charles Hayes

Project Manager
Houston, United States

Charles began his journey in Axess in 2017. As an avid cyclist, he enjoys cycling both in the countryside and the city.

What was your journey like in Axess?
My journey within Axess Group has been like no other! I started out as a Wire Rope Inspection contract employee in 2017. Subsequently, I was converted to a full-time employee, where I took on a work lead role and executed various scopes of work such as Rig Wide NDT, Lifting Gear Surveys and DROPS Inspections. My passion for excelling in my job pushed me to do even more, such as assisting our Project Manager with training and mentoring technicians during my time onshore.

In 2021, I was offered the opportunity to grow within the Group. Now, as a Project Manager, I am mainly involved with managing projects for a major client, and I strive to achieve continued success.

What do you hope to achieve in the company?
I believe that learning is an ongoing process. Regardless of whichever position I might find myself in in future, I hope to continuously learn new things to better myself. Aside from self-improvement, I also hope to make a difference to others by taking on the role of a mentor.

The best thing for me is the presence of open lines of communication within the Group.
What is the best thing about working in Axess?
The best thing for me is the presence of open lines of communication within the Group. Employees are comfortable going to the management for questions, support and feedback. Everyone is treated equally and heard equally, regardless of hierarchy.

I also like that my colleagues and I spend time outside of work together. For example, after discovering that some of us have participated in Bike MS in previous years, we decided to form a team and participate together in 2019. We got to know each other better during training rides and built camaraderie.
